The Tate’s seventh floor restaurant offers stunning views from seven floors up & an experience that’s as accessible & welcoming as the gallery itself. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide the vistas, while families, art nerds & tourists supply the buzzing background chatter. Dinner (Fri & Sat only) offers a brief but considered menu of impressive dishes with a modern British theme – Norfolk asparagus with pickled wild mushrooms & parmesan shavings, say, or simple grilled plaice with caper & brown butter. Lunch offers more of the same, with the addition of mezze plates for sharing. All profits support the gallery, so you need have no qualms about simply calling in for a drink at the bar: the wine list has plenty of bottles under £30, but it’s the all-British beer selection that wins our vote.
Fabulously easy to navigate, beautifully laid out and absolutely stuffed with interesting vinous nuggets, Tate Modern splits up its wines by weight – so, ‘richer’ ‘aromatic’ and ‘light and fresh’ for whites; ‘lighter’, ‘medium-bodied’ and ‘full-bodied’ for reds, and each section has no more than eight wines in it. Very easy to follow, this is a an exercise in condensation.
